We are pleased to announce the latest release of Routinator, version 0.14.0 ‘You Must Gather Your Party Before Venturing Forth.’

Routinator is an RPKI relying party software that collects and validates statements in the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) about allowed route origins and makes them available to the BGP workflow.

For this release, we revamped how Routinator stores the local copy of RRDP repositories. Previously, each object in the repository was stored in its own file on the local file system. Because repositories consist of lots of very small objects, there was always a risk of running out of inodes – resulting in a confusing “No space left on device” error message. Now, we store all the objects in a single file which will avoid running out of inodes and should also save some disk space.

Our friends at Tweede Golf helped us revamp the Routinator UI and rewrote it using React only. While at it we streamlined the build system so it doesn’t require downloading assets during build any more.

This release updates one of our dependencies in response to a security advisory related to the HTTP server. If you are running Routinator allowing direct access to its HTTP server from the Internet (i.e., not with a reverse proxy in between), we suggest to upgrade to this version.

As always, there have been many smaller changes and improvements. The full list of changes is available in the release notes
